The legendary Lupi captain surpassed the 200-goal mark in Serie A thanks to consecutive braces in his last two games. He also scored in the first encounter of the season against Juve and would love nothing more than to continue his hot streak against the Bianconeri.

A. Matri

Position: Attacker

Games: 5

  • 0
The Italy international has scored twice in his last two games for the Old Lady and coach Gigi Del Neri will count on him to run the Roma defence ragged. Fresh off his goal for the Azzurri in the international friendly against Ukraine, the 26-year-old will hope to take that momentum into the clash with the Giallorossi on Sunday.

Editor's Prediction

Juve have an excellent track record against Roma and despite their injury woes might be able to spring a surprise in the Eternal City. The Lupi are undefeated with Vincenzo Montella at the helm and will be looking to heap more misery on the Bianconeri.

The two teams battled to a score draw in their first encounter and another stalemate is likely on the cards.
